Just so you know, the application tickets are valid only in Japan. Pre-orders aren't yet available on YesAsia or HMV.
I was sure she'd remake this song, "Lost Child" would've been great too but Japan always prefer cute songs. I'm pretty annoyed there are different tracklists in each version.
Since she's with EMI Music Japan, I hope the packages of her singles will be as great as SHINee's !

Thanks for starting this thread! Beforehand I'd never heard of IU but I just listened to some tracks from her album and was hooked. I love her slower songs like The Story Only I Didn't Know and Slow. I'm not into some of the earlier songs I've heard as much, but since she's pretty young I guess that's kind of to be expected while she works out what type of artist she is/going to be. Her newer music sounds more mature and works really well. Some of the music reminds me of Ayumi's My Story Classical (which is perfect since I really like that album). It's also nice to see a new solo singer doing well considering all the attention seems to be on groups in korean music.

The only downside to all this is I'm going to have to spend even more money on kpop now lol.

IU - Last Fantasy MV : Contains footage from 'IU Japan Premium Special Live' and IU visiting places in Tokyo. I think they made a good choice using the live performance, the song is really beautiful and using this type of simple MV lets the music shine through.

Apparently she's actually almost done working on a new Korean song, but doesn't know yet if it's gonna be a digital single or a follow-up track to her last album.
The problem is they don't know when to release it since she's gonna be busy with the promotion of her Japanese debut... I guess all Korean artists debuting in Japan face the crazy schedule problem anyway (*cough*SHINee*cough*).
